Perhaps the PDF was not extended features for Adobe Reader thus not allowing Reader to save data with the PDF.

Something I have seen all too often.

Attach the PDF and I'll take a look at it.

Attached is a test document as requested.

That wasn't even an Interactive Form (created with MS Word), let alone extended features for Adobe reader.

See the attached...

Ok I see your file allows insertion of a digital signature, now tell me how you did it.

I loaded the file in Adobe Acrobat thinking that it did not have extended features for Adobe Reader.  I could see that it was not an Adobe form and that it only had a rectangle for the intended Signing Certificate field.

I loaded the PDF into Adobe LifeCycle Designer and chose the Signature field and dragged it over the rectangle.  I then expanded the field to cover the rectangle you had in place then saved the PDF.

I then loaded it in Adobe Acrobat and chose Advanced --> Extend features in Adobe Reader then saved the form.  If you don't extend features in Adobe Reader then only Adobe Acrobat can save data to the form.

I'm looking for the capability to digital sign a MS Word or Powerpoint document Adobe LifeCycle Designer is beyond the use and scope of a typical home user.

Typical Home User's don't do PKI and digitally sign forms and they don't have associated Smart Card middleware.

Adobe LifeCycle Designer (included with Adobe Acrobat Professional) is the best way to create fillable forms that can be digitally signed.
